Thanks For Everything, Detroit!

Thanks For Everything, Detroit!

Dear Readers, It has been two wonderful, amazing and rewarding years! If I could, I would buy each and every one of you a pint at Bronx to celebrate. When I launched Detroit Girls About Town as a little Wordpress blog in February of 2010, my biggest concern was whether anyone would find it, let alone read it. Now, at the two year mark, I can [...]

The Guys Behind The Guapo: Inside Detroit’s First Food Truck

The Guys Behind The Guapo: Inside Detroit’s First Food Truck

Food trucks date back to the late 1800's with chuck wagons in Texas. For us though, food trucks date back to when ran to the ice cream truck as kids. The mobile restaurants have since made a comeback, and this past summer, Detroit finally got hip to the game. We literally watched in envy as Korean BBQ and schnitzel trucks took to the streets [...]

Four Savvy Reasons To Smile

Four Savvy Reasons To Smile

Winter, spring, summer and fall. Paul, George, Ringo and John. Fire, water, earth and air. Four, it seems, is the magic number.

Cool Like That: Detroit Jazz Fest Heats Labor Day Weekend

So Hart Plaza has been jammed packed with festivals this summer. We smacked on some good bbq at the Ribs and Soul Festival, got back to our roots with the African World Festival, but, as always, the Motor City saved the best for last -- hot jazz. The 32nd Annual Detroit Jazz Festival, taking place this Labor Day Weekend, is going to be filled [...]

Where In The World Is James Franco?

Where In The World Is James Franco?

Like nearly all red-blooded, MTV watching twentysomethings, we often find ourselves wondering where James Franco is. And just our luck, he's in Detroit shooting Oz: The Great And Powerful, a Wizard Of Oz prequel where he plays the wizard. If you, like us, think about the whereabouts of Mr. Franco, then ponder along with us as we list the places [...]

Celebrate her life today by checking out our favorite Aaliyah videos --- and by swooping your hair over your eye, Veronica Lake style.

McClure’s X Better Made Chips

McClure’s X Better Made Chips

For Detroiters, it doesn't get more real than with a bag of Better Made chips. From the bright yellow metallic bags, to how the crispy chips literally melt on your tongue, eating Better Made's is like eating the city. The only thing that could make these homegrown crisps better is the addition of another homegrown flavor -- and that's where [...]

OK, so this isn't really a music video, but it was just too good to pass up. Close your eyes and listen to this one with the volume up really loud. Your listening pleasure will be greatly multiplied by dancing in your skivvies in front of a mirror with a hairbrush microphone.
